Re: clips for the belt line on our 1940

The correct clips for the sidemounts and the luggage rack are the same, but hardly any car I see has the correct ones. They are flat, and have two ears. You push the ears through the hole, into the trim piece, then twist a quarter turn with a screw driver.

This one appears to be a 120, since it looks like it has push-out vent windows. By 1941, ALL 160s had roll-crank vent windows.

I'll be there with Packard in tow (1930). Would love to see your car there.

Are you considering going/entering the AACA Fall Nationals in Gettysburg on November 7th?

I still think you should use the four-terminal regulator.

In regard to using TWO optima batteries...
I just for the first time bought two optima batteries, ONE for the Speedster and ONE for the '40. They work great so far. You really don't need two batteries. One is sufficient, and less of a headache.

I'm currently using an Auto-Lite VRP-4008A, although I think the original may have been 4003A (??). The 4003A is 35 amps, while the 4008A is 40 amps. With air-conditioning on my car, I prefer to use the 40-amp unit.

The important thing, though, is that you have the four terminals. A friend told me he had a whole shelf of these 4008s. I'll reach out to him and see if I can get you one.

I've never been able to find new VRs with four terminals. Does your Brillman have four terminals to match the original Auto-Lite VRP?

I just re-read your previous post. I must have perused right by where it said "Frame Reinforcement". That must have been an add-on for 1931, or my car is missing them. Still seems superfluous to me, as the frame is quite ridged. I'll have to check other 1930 Packards now to see if they are on there.
